Life rules. Loving someone who likes you does definitely add to it too. I've had the greatest of Xmases with my SuperWoman and her family. Lots and lots of purse holding. Lots of good food and friendly banter and some innocent snuggling. Wasting money on my beloved. Small kids screaming like pigs led to slaughter while we laugh our heads off at their clueless stupidity and fake martyr faces. Ah, the small joys of adulthood.
